Blue Skies + White Clouds | July #MonthlyMani

July 19, 2016

Um, hello, we’re more than half way through July already?!  Say what?!  If you follow me on social media, then you know I JUST got back from a lovely long trip to the Baltic (more on that later this week, promise!), which means I am trying to get over a serious case of jet lag.  Luckily, there are few better distractions than a little self-care in the form of a summer mani pedi!  That’s right, this month’s #MonthlyMani theme is: Mani Pedi!

Since we have never done a mani/pedi combination for #MonthlyMani before, we decided to keep the theme simple without any actual theme guidelines other than painting your nails and toes!  I went for a (very) simple design featuring one of my all-time favorite pedicure colors – blue!  I am not sure what it is, but I just love the look of blue toes hee hee!

To create this look, I simply started with a base coat of my favorite blue polish (a recent addition to my collection and my latest obsession).  Then, to make the clouds, I used my dotting tool to put groupings of three to five dots together in the shape of a cloud.  That’s it, just dots!  Told ya it was easy!  ;)

I have a confession to make: I actually bought this blue polish specifically to match my blue Teva sandals.  I got these super fun flatform Teva’s on clearance at DSW for only $5 (after my birthday coupon), and they are possibly the most comfortable sandals I own.  Though, I’ve always loved blue toenails and I can still remember my sister making fun of my blue toes when I was younger haha!
